Low-cost biosensors that can be adopted for mobile diagnostics and health monitoring applications.
Sequencing can be, very soon, what PCR is for molecular biology – backbone for an immeasurable number of applications in fundamental research, molecular diagnostics and platform tools. But today, sequencing is still very expensive, and simpler/cheaper platforms to sequence DNA have proven enormously difficult to develop.
We chose to investigate why sequencing technologies are hard to develop, and in this pursuit, managed to figure out how to systematically address the various challenging elements (especially their interactions) that comprise a robust sequencing platform.
In our explorations we have uncovered a number of novel behavior and useful tricks in enzymology, optics, synthetic chemistry, surface chemistry and nanofabrication. We are collecting the best of our discoveries into a compelling product we hope to unveil soon.
